Exclamation Is it ethical that all of celebrity's dirty laundry is exposed for all to see?

In thinking about the Tiger Woods scandal, his career is done. I'm not justifying what he did, but others have committed similar mistakes except they are not fossilized forevermore by thousands of internet articles and tv reports. Anyone can look up his screw ups and access them at any time.

Is that ethical? Not what Tiger (or anyone in the public eye) did, but how their mistakes are made permanently accessible for anyone.

I know I would be mortified if all my crap were on display for everyone. I know people think celebrities deserve it when it does happen, but as a human, is it ethical and why or why not?

Its the American mentality of potraying their hero as flawless character . One who has no wrongs . The more pure he looks the more higher up the pedastal he goes . Except when such scandals break out . Americans view it as a betrayal of their trust and hence will pull him down with same intensity .. If he was just some average Joe like Jesse james I wonder anyone would care...

Re: Is it ethical that all of celebrity's dirty laundry is exposed for all to see?

Its an almost universal law that if you are a celebrity or public figure then whatever you do is public property.

That comes with the territory.

Is it wrong to sensationalize celebrity gossip and shortcomings? Ethically its wrong, but then the same people who made these folks celebrity also want to know all the dirty laundry. So what can one do? Will you stop watching TV shows and news which sensationalize such stuff? There, you have your answer.

Just cause its on television is reason to watch? Let women enjoy what they enjoy. Why cross the gender boundary?

Sutradarji, no one can force voyeurism up a man's throat.
